Road Construction Projects
Traverse Ridge Road
Starting Tuesday, November 1, Draper City and Whitaker Construction will begin work on improving the transmission waterline in Traverse Ridge Road. Specifically, the valves and working pieces located in vaults will be replaced and three new vaults will be constructed to ensure all corroded parts are removed and that new vaults are constructed in a manner that significantly reduces the risk of corrosion. Due to water use in the summer months, this project must be performed mostly during the winter. Our plan is to complete this project by May 2022. However, due to delays in steel fabrication and shipping, there is a possibility work will need to be continued in winter of 2022-2023.
On November 1, intermittent right lane closures will be implemented in six different locations along the uphill lane on Traverse Ridge Road; from Maple Park Court to the 4-way stop at Suncrest Dr. Lane shifts will also be in place for east and west bound traffic at that intersection (see map for details). This traffic control plan is anticipated to remain in place for two weeks while exploratory potholing to get measurements for steel fabrication can be completed and the temporary asphalt patching will take place. Dates will be subject to forecasted weather and may be subject to change. We will provide updates as warranted and as additional phases of work are scheduled for this project.
If you have any questions, please call Robert Markle, Deputy Public Works Director, at 801-576-6360.
12300 South and 450 East
Starting Wednesday, September 29, closures will impact traffic on 450 East at 12300 South, related to prep work for a new traffic signal at that intersection. This work is expected to be completed by late November. Please review the closure map and plan for delays and/or alternate routes when traveling through or visiting businesses in that area.

Suncrest Dr./Eagles Stone Way/Edge Way: HAWK Beacon Installation (Estimated completion - end of October)
Draper City is planning to install a new HAWK beacon at the intersection of Suncrest Dr./Eagles Stone Way/Edge Way. The HAWK beacon will help improve the safety of crossing Suncrest Dr. for pedestrians--including school children and trail users. It will begin to be installed in Fall 2021. The city is also considering rerouting part of Eagle Crest Trail to encourage trail users to utilize the HAWK beacon to cross Suncrest Dr. A HAWK beacon is a high-intensity activated crosswalk beacon used to stop road traffic and allow pedestrians to cross safety. It is also known as a pedestrian hybrid beacon. View a map of the planned installation project.Road construction season is in progress. Following is a list of projects planned for 2021. Please note that project start and end dates are subject to change. If you have questions on these projects, contact Draper City's Engineering office at 801-576-6585 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bangerter Parkway and Vestry Road (Estimated completion - end of October)
A new traffic signal will be installed to manage the increase in traffic.
Deer Ridge Dr. (Spring to Fall 2022)
Draper City is currently in the design process to replace a main transmission water line that serves the Suncrest area. This water line replacement project will affect planned road improvements on Deer Ridge Drive. The City originally planned to repair the existing water line in Deer Ridge Drive and complete the reconstruction of the roadway this year. However, as work began on the first phase of the water line repair, it became evident that the severity of the corrosion of the existing water line and the depth at which it was constructed would likely make the repairs unfeasible to complete as planned. After further analysis, it has been determined that replacing the water line will be a more effective long term solution than repairing the existing water line. The City feels this is the best course of action to reduce the amount of disruptions to the Suncrest water system and Deer Ridge Drive. We are planning to commence construction on the new water line in early spring of next year with the completion of the reconstructed roadway by early fall of next year. Draper City is committed to residents' safety and quality of life. We appreciate your patience as we continue working on this project.
300 East and 12300 South (Spring or Summer 2022)
300 East will be widened to add dual left turn lanes on Draper Parkway.
1300 E. and Pioneer Rd. Roundabout (Postponed until 2022)
To improve traffic flow, a second lane will be added through the roundabout in the NB and SB directions on 1300 E. New dedicated right turn lanes will be added on the EB and WB approaches of Pioneer Rd.
Draper City does not have control over UDOT (state transportation) projects. UDOT projects in Draper will be posted below as they occur, with links to UDOT's website for more information.
